When the FBI takes her into custody, purportedly for murder, the local reaction is stunned disbelief. Yet, those closest to her realize that they have learned little about her earlier life.Poppy Blake is confined to a wheelchair, the result of a snowmobile accident nearly a dozen years prior that left her a paraplegic and killed her male companion. Since then, she has worked hard to rebuild her life. Her guilt over past mistakes prevents her from pursuing a future.Writer Griffin Hughes originally traveled to Lake Henry to investigate a national news story involving Lily Blake, Poppy's older sister. It is his chance comment to his brother -- an FBI agent -- that leads the law to Heather. To redeem himself Griffin is compelled to solve the mystery of Heather's past.Set during the maple syrup harvesting season, when the harshness of winter yields to the sweet promise of spring, An Accidental Woman celebrates the values of community, friendship, and the redemptive power of love.
